2020 Awardee – Mr. James Needham, Land Valuation Department

Mr. Needham’s leadership, consistent communication and dedicated service influenced his colleagues to recognise the value of the PATI Act and the importance of strengthening the Department’s transparency. Mr. Needham’s hard work to ensure that his Department made proactive disclosures, along with his diligence and openness when working with PATI requesters or anyone seeking information from the Department, made the Department more transparent to the public in concrete ways.
